Amazon Gift Certificate Giveaway!!


This might help (a tiny bit anyway) with Holiday Shopping--

I love love love buying cute children books for my kids. Did I mention I love children's books? LOL. Anyhoo- I have been looking at some really wonderful books to buy for the kids this Christmas, and I have found several that I really like. Number one right now on my list is "Good Night, Gorilla" by Peggy Rathman. It's a board book (an absolute MUST in our house with the two mischievous monkeys I have!), and what is really cool is that on each page there is a red balloon hiding out for little ones to find.
But I want to know what some of your favorite children's books are, or were. If you were going to buy any books this Holiday Season, which ones would they be? So here is the Giveaway part (I know you have probably been reading and thinking, sheesh, what about the giveaway?? LOL)

Leave me a comment about your favorite book to read to your kids, and why it is your favorite. That's it. Simple, right? Want another chance to win? Then blog about my giveaway, and comment a second time here letting me know you blogged about the giveaway. And yet another chance? Subscribe to my blog, let me know via comment, and you will have a third entry! The giveaway ends midnight Sunday November 16th, and the winner's name will be randomly drawn Monday November 17th.

And the giveaway? A $15 Amazon Gift Certificate (and, NO, you do not have to buy a children's book with it,LOL)

Good Luck!

Note** I inadvertently put down the wrong ending date for this giveaway. It will end on November 16th, NOT the 23rd as I had originally posted. Sorry about that!

I love reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears with my daughter...a tried and true story I grew up with, it still fascinates the readers young and old. And we love impersonating momma bear, papa bear and baby bear!

At the moment my favorite book to read my little guy is, Pass the Peas, Please: A Book of Manners by: Dina Anastasio. It is a great book on manners, but is really cute and kinda silly at the same time! Great giveaway!
Thanks, Bridget

My daughter is only one, but she prefers family classics like Call of the Wild to baby books. Must be the tone of my voice!

My favorite book right now is Goodnight Moon. The thing I love most about it is that my daughter knows the words by heart, and she loves it. Reading that book together is part of our nighttime routine, and it is warm and special for both of us.

I read Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose to my children. They never tire of the nursery rhymes and it's great way to build early reading skills. The illustrations in the book are superb as well.

My sons favorite book is Monster Mess. We borrowed it from the library and were sad when we had to return it. Now Santa is bringing it for Xmas. I get excited to read any book that he gets excited about.

What a tough question! We love SO many books. Right now our favorite is Shopping with Dad from Barefoot Books, because I love it's rhyming text and the fact that it's a Daddy/daughter story. It's also really funny with a great moral.

Thanks for a great giveaway!

We have a bunch of favorites in this household, but one of my all time favorites to read to my girls is Thirsty Baby. The illustrations aren't my favorites ever, but I really love the story itself. My girls think it's pretty funny too.

Thanks for the entry.

I'd love to win this to put toward Christmas.

I don't have one particular book I like to read to them, I like reading all kinds of different books that we get from the library.

I don't have kids of my own, but I love reading The Sleep Book (by Dr. Seuss) to the kids I babysit - it's an interesting challenge for me to read it without getting tongue-tied, and it puts the kids in the mood for bed.

Rachel Elizabeth said...

I am studying children's literature right now and love it! I would say my favorites are Where the Wild things are and Verdi.

Mommy In Pink said...

This would be great for my son! Right now he loves when we read the book "Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You?"

Rashmi said...

My son loves Caillou and together we've spent many a night reading those stories over and over again. When that turns stale, we turn to some Disney favorites.

Thanks for this great giveaway!

I loved Rikki, Tikki, Tembo. It was a book about a boy who had a very long name and fell in a well. I think it is out of print now, but I got my hands on a copy a couple of years back. Major Score!
